The Lady Tigers (11-10, 3-7 Region 7-3A) find themselves battling for a first-round region tournament game at home after beating North Hall on Friday at home. 

The win closes the gap to just one game behind the Lady Trojans (6-14, 4-6 Region 7-3A) for the fourth spot in the standings. Both teams have two games remaining in region play.

It was Lady Lions’ first region win of the season (4-12, 1-3 Region 6-A Private) and their second straight win overall.

The Lady Lions opened with a 17-12 first quarter run but the game was back-and-forth the rest of the way. Pinecrest rallied to tie the game at 25 by halftime and Lakeview took a slim 35-33 lead into the fourth quarter.

But Lakeview outscored Pinecrest 7-0 in the extra period to get the victory.
